Well this is fun. In 2022, moms get in FREE to Botanica on Mother’s Day, May 8!
(In recent years, Botanica had been giving mothers discounted admission. But now they’re back to FREE. I love it!)
Bring Mom to the gardens on Sunday, May 8, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and she’ll get free admission. Other guests will pay regular admission prices, which are:
$8 seniors, military, and youth
Free for ages 3 and under
You can pack a picnic lunch or grab some lunch from one of the food trucks that will be onsite. Botanica will even have multicultural performances by the Wichita Asian Association as you walk through the gardens at Botanica.
While supplies last, the Association will also be providing samples from around the Asian continent at multiple stations, as well as a Henna experience for a suggested donation, all within the Chinese Garden.
This is a really good time of year to visit Botanica, when many of the flowers are in bloom and the weather is usually just right – not too hot and not too cold.
Throughout the gardens there are a few places to stop and rest, or you can make your way back to the patio and find tables and chairs.
This year they’ll have the Washed Ashore exhibit that features art made entirely from plastics found in the ocean.
Again this year, moms (and everyone) can purchase Mimosas at the Mom-osa Bar.
And the Khicha Family Carousel is open and tickets will be available to purchase at the admissions desk or in the Carousel Pavilion.
If you’re looking for the perfect Mothers Day gift, consider a Botanica membership; it’s something she can enjoy year-round. Check out their Mother’s Day Membership sale!
